The carols! The cocktails! The twinkle lights! The achy feet!
If dancing, or even just standing, in your sky-high party heels at this season’s festive fiestas make your soles cry “SOS!” here’s a weird (but surprisingly effective) trick: tape your third and fourth toes together. Anything from scotch tape to medical tape will work. It seems ridiculous, but it actually steadies the muscles in your foot, and can keep you dancing well into the New Year.
